Toyota wants to help create hydrogen filling station in the US

Toyota Motor, which is getting ready to sell Camry-sized sedans powered by fuel cells next year in the US, plans to help create a network of hydrogen stations that may include pumps at car dealers and even trash dumps.

Yesterday, the automaker showed its hydrogen-fueled FCV sedan, a concept version of the car Toyota would sell in the US and Japan next year, at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Bob Carter, Toyota’s U.S. group vice president, said in an interview that along with cutting costs to make the vehicles, Toyota will do “whatever we can” to get more fuel stations set up.

“We’re throwing everything against the wall,” Carter said yesterday in Las Vegas. “We know we have to push the infrastructure.”

While hydrogen for fuel and industrial uses is produced mainly by steaming it out of natural gas, Toyota is exploring alternative sources including methane emitted from waste-treatment plants, trash dumps and landfills and agricultural sources, Craig Scott, the carmaker’s U.S. national manager for advanced technologies, said in an interview in Las Vegas.

The Japan-based carmaker is exploring how to work with other companies to set up pumps dispensing hydrogen from such sources, Scott said, without elaborating. Some Toyota dealers in California may also install hydrogen pumps, Carter said.
